Pumpkin bowling party attracts hundreds in Pleasantville

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of pumpkins were rolling in Pleasantville over the weekend. 

The Sullivan family held its annual Pumpkin Bowling Party. The family traditionally holds the event the weekend after Thanksgiving.

More than 200 people showed up to toss gourds down a very steep driveway hoping to hit a custom handmade ramp and target.

"It's a great way for the community to get together and make new friends. All ages come out and we roll pumpkins down, we have good food,” says Hana Sullivan. The family says its also a good way to get rid of the communities Halloween pumpkins.

The Sullivan's also took it up a notch this year by adding a pumpkin slingshot to the party. The slingshot was reserved only for the smaller, white pumpkins.
